Manufactured in 1882, the larger caliber Model 1876 was popular among those in the West who believed .44-40 wasn't quite enough stopping power for whatever they might encounter. This example is a Third Model, with integral dust cover guide and a dust cover with grip serrations at the rear. The barrel is marked with the two-line Winchester address/King's patent marking and the caliber marking at the breech, which is repeated on the bottom of the cartridge elevator. The upper tang is marked with the model designation, and the serial number is on the lower tang. It is fitted with a German silver blade front sight and "1876" marked folding ladder rear sight. It is mounted with a smooth forearm and straight grip stock with a trapdoor crescent buttplate (cleaning rod not included).
Fine, retains 60% of the original blue finish with the balance having thinned to mostly a plum-brown patina and a few scattered patches of light surface pitting. The wood is also fine with a few scattered light handling marks throughout. Mechanically excellent.
